That’s Greece

This short documentary is really good attempt by the British Hellenic Chamber of Commerce (BHCC) when they presented this at their Annual Conference in London on 28 June 2011 to dispel many of the myths and common misconceptions surrounding Greece and it people.

It is really pertinent in 2012 because the economic situation in Greece has deteriorated…but the underlying principles and messages outlined in this short documentary/presentation hold true to this day (bar the statement on peaceful protesting perhaps).

Greece is a timeless country and the beauty of the country and it’s people will remain as it has done over the previous centuries of torrid times.

The documentary goes a long way to dispel many of the commonly held myths and beliefs and it does so in a very creative and simplistic way..which again is aligned to the Greek people themselves. The Greeks work more average hours than many of the leading European countries. They have invested heavily in new and modern technology and infrastructure.

Greek exports have increased by approaching one third and they have a wealth of natural resources which can be developed to bring them out of the difficulties they currently face through the fault…not of their people but the people in power at the head of government. They have almost infinite sunshine giving immense potential for solar power generation. They have the constant Aegean winds for wind power and the potential with such a massive coastline for further power production… Green sustainable energy is required not just in Greece but around the world.. Greece also has a wealth of Natural Gas resource which is not fully exploited yet.

Even though tourism was predicted to RISE by 20% in 2011 it probably fell somewhat due to the general economic world recession and in some small way due to the unrest in Greece in general. The fact remains that Greece is such a beautiful place, with beautiful people and beautiful weather that despite what politics dictate Greece as a whole will continue to be a dream destination for any tourist. great holiday destinations and a plethora of things to do see and visit again dispel many of the common myths. I myself have just returned from spending 4 months researching for a travel site www.mygreeceholiday.com and was simply enthralled by the country and will certainly be back there within the year.

The music in the documentary is nicely in keeping with the flavour of the message being presented…views of magnificent blue flag beaches and wonderful museums and ancient ruins complement the key message at the end of the documentary. The Greeks are resilient and WILL come through this latest bout of dis-rest and economic uncertainty.
